nearly 2 years old, this was exceptionally smooth, full of barrel character and gorgeously blended caramel, toffee, brown sugar notes, and not overly sweet. Excellent beer

Pours into a small tulip glass a menacing looking murky burnt orange infused brown with a thick creamy light beige head atop that clings to the glass like glue.Mild bourbon infused with brown sugar in the nose,the vanilla tinged bourbon isn't to overbearing,you can tell it's a malt bomb though no doubt.A full creamy feel is just spot on,fantastic.Bourbon and toasted oak on the palate,just really fresh.The caramel and vanilla stand out more as I drink more and as it warms,a warming sipper.Underrated in my humble opinion,this is a fantastic English style barley wine.

In an improvised snifter the beer was ruby red in color with a small tan head.
Aroma of biscuit and caramel, burnt sugar. Oak.
Caramel and toffee taste. Biscuit. Vanilla. A hint of alcohol.
The flavors married well. Not a lot of evidence of the 12.5% ABV.
A beautiful beer!
